50% of employees working Christmas Day did not get a choice, whilst 24% of employees believe the rota to be unfair.

According to a similar report by the Office for National Statistics, 3.3% of employees will be working Christmas Day, this is the equivalent of 1.04 million workers.

The report also revealed that the folowing occupations are the most likly to work on the 25th December: 

1. Care workers and home carers (176,000 satff expected to work)

2. Nurses (97,000 staff expected to work)

Bradley Post, Managing Director of RIFT tax refunds, comments:

“Christmas is a time for families and loved ones to meet and celebrate, however, we need to also pay tribute to those hard workers who keep the country running over the Christmas period.

Our research suggests that employees might not have a choice in working Christmas and where possible, I would like to see employers giving their staff some form of reward.”
